Engineering News-Record (ENR) announced the winning entries for the ENR MidAtlantic Best Projects of 2015. Ballinger’s Science and Engineering Hall at George Washington University received the Award of Merit in the Higher Education/Research category.

The 750,000 SF Science and Engineering Hall is the focal point of GW’s rapidly expanding research emphasis, and was designed to transform the university’s capabilities and reputation in key areas of academic pursuit. The building brings together research and teaching spaces previously spread across a dozen buildings, and nearly doubles the space on campus available to a variety of science and engineering programs.

The ENR MidAtlantic Best Projects competition recognizes the year’s top projects in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
